Science Faculty Introduce Local Children to the Wonders of Science

Lots of “oohs” and “ahhs” and a couple shrieks were heard in the Taylor Science Center during spring break when two groups of local third-grade students visited for some hands-on science learning with the help of Hamilton’s science faculty. For more than 20 years, Professor of Biology Dave Gapp has organized “Science Exploration Days” which bring classes of elementary school students to Hamilton for guided tours and short lessons in various areas of science.  More ...

Kari Koga ’15 Explores Genetics Research

Since the discovery of the double helix structure of DNA in 1953, the study and the understanding of genetics has grown exponentially. Gene therapy, the Human Genome Project, and “designer babies” exhibit the growing interest and relevance of genetics on modern society. Kari Koga ’15, a biology major, has had the opportunity to explore her passion for genetics research for the past three summers with Evolutionary Genomics.  More ...

Herbal Medicines: Not a Modern Craze

In our society seemingly obsessed with healthy, natural ingredients in everything from food to shampoo, herbal medicines and supplements might seem like a contemporary trend. But their history in fact goes back to the 18th century. A new exhibit at Burke Library is displaying the proof.  More ...

Ben Wesley ’16 Receives Sigma Xi Grant for Research with Prof. Majireck

Junior biochemistry concentrator Ben Wesley received a Sigma Xi Grants-in-Aid of Research (GIAR) award for a proposal titled “Development of a Continuous Flow Reactor for Synthesis of Izidine Alkaloids.” Each year, several hundred to 1000 proposals are submitted to Sigma Xi to fund research-related expenses in many different areas of science.  The award program is highly competitive, and only about 15 percent of applications are funded.    More ...

Catherine Oglevee '15
Catherine Oglevee ’15 Work at Mass General Leads to Published Paper

Many of us have experienced a technological glitch, whether the TV isn’t responding to the remote, or the dishwasher is starting on its own. While such glitches are typically an inconvenience, when the machine has the potential to detect life-threatening medical conditions, the stakes are higher. During her time at Mass General Hospital (MGH) this summer, Catherine Oglevee ’15, a chemistry and mathematics double major, discovered first hand that no matter how advanced a machine may be, none are immune to malfunctions.  More ...
